Message about death of student Hamza Warsame

December, 7, 2015

Dear Campus Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the sad news that one of our students, Hamza Warsame, passed away as a result of a fall on Saturday. On behalf of Seattle Central College, I extend my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Hamza, as well as his fellow students and the instructors who were privileged to know this young man. To lose one of our students who showed so much promise is a deeply tragic event, one that will no doubt touch each of us in profound ways.

It is my understanding that the circumstances surrounding Hamza’s death are being investigated. I pledge to keep you informed as soon as more is known.

With such difficult news, please know that counselors are available on campus if you need to speak with someone during this time of grieving.
